It can be mega hard to get to sleep, can’t it? Exhausted from work, head buzzing with anxieties about all the stupid decisions you made that day, random memories of something embarrassing you did in Year 9 suddenly entering your consciousness, you probably fall asleep at about 2.30am with your phone clutched in your claw-like hand, beaming bright light directly into your face. Not that restful, tbh.

That’s not to say that there aren’t plenty of things you can do to get a better night’s sleep – you’re just probably not actually going to do them. Put your phone away before you go to sleep? In this economy? No: what you need is something that doesn’t actually involve you making any significant changes to your lifestyle or bedtime routine at all. 

Which makes Lush’s Sleepy body lotion the answer to your sleep-deprived prayers. 

Since Lush brought Sleepy back, customers have claimed it’s given them the “best night’s sleep ever”. 

“As someone with incurable and not so common chronic illnesses which result in chronic pain and insomnia because of the pain, Sleepy lotion is the one product that can actually help me through the worst of my nights,” wrote one Redditor.

The product counts oatmeal, lavender, ylang ylang and cocoa butter amongst its ingredients – all of which have been proven to help aid sleep. The Sleep Foundation point to lavender’s ability to “decrease heart rate and blood pressure, potentially putting you in a more relaxed state”.

“Surrounding yourself with the scent you like could help you drift off and, in fact, one study found that smells (both good and bad) influence our dreams,” the foundation explains on its website. 

If you want to get your hands on Sleepy, you can get it here for the pretty reasonable price of £13.95. Sweet dreams!
